I'm at a point where I no longer care about processor frequency

Yeah you have to since like nothing has changed here in a long time. If it ever does, that will be good news. This like AMD.. show me the benches.

As for CPU bottle-necking, it seems mmo's might have the on avg hardest time with cpu's.

Isn't it possible that it really still will be Skynet? How can we ever say if "True AI" were to exist. It should come to a conclusion probably sooner than later, putting us out of our misery with Machines 2.0 is for the greater good.

Maybe eventually, but it's a lot easier to write targeted AIs the replace things like tax accountants, taxi drivers, statisticians, and the like than it is to write a fully-formed self-conscious AI.

I think jobs that require the combination of physical action with intelligence are going to be the ones more slowly replaced by AI robots, because robots are hard. Think: plumber, nurse, orthodontist, veterinarian, electrician, etc.

Yeah this whole AI word can have a lot of meaning. True AI is not Tree Logic AI which is most likely what is being referenced. Will more simplistic robots take more jobs? Yep.

How would it be that instead of just getting more money from their monopoly while doing nothing, which is how Steam Direct translates to me, if Valve would actually check whatever they sell on Steam for quality or at least make sure it runs how intended to weed out the trash?

Let's start with basic chat support for the products that they sell, then phone support, then maybe they'll have enough money to get some eyeballs on the exact quality of all the shovelware. Steam might be a multi-billion dollar monopolistic business, but they still operate like they're a startup "greenlight" project.

And I fully understand why they don't do this, because any issue with any game they sell they'd have to field those questions, the system would be swamped by a billion "this random game doesn't work" things. Which as a retailer, they SHOULD have to deal with, but they've found this ingenious way to avoid this fundamental retailer responsibility altogether, and force their customers to deal directly with the "manufacturer".
Neither newegg, amazon, dell, walmart, target etc helps customers who have problems with computers, software, hardware or other items purchased from them.

Why should Steam be any different?

What is funny the whipping boy ORIGIN does!!! You can chat with them within minutes and get shit resolved. lol

Pricing? ehh... I wouldn't' mind if these type start out as a seperate Tag Search. Aka I look for games typically, I don't see these. However I want to see if there is something out there beyond that to scratch the itch. I search this group for results. After X many copies sold it moves from the "Special Search" to becoming a product on the mainstream. I like to think that is one thing that bothers many is, everything comes up and too much of it is really unwanted by most.

They should have had devs lined up out the ass to have product ready to go.

I don't know how Oculus wasn't able to have a major AAA game ready to launch with Rift given a) the ridiculously long dev time Rift had and b) that facebook money. I'm sure as engines are built for VR support it'll slowly gain ground, but what a whimper of a start for the medium...

Even if it was just porting successful games like Skyrim, GTA, etc. to VR that would have made all the difference. There is less than zero incentive to get a VR system given the price and lack of games.

Isn't there a Fallout VR version coming this year? It also depends on what genres you like, I hear there are some knockouts if you are into them. Price for me. I didn't wait a whole year for the same system at the same price.

I borrowed my friend's Oculus Rift a few weeks back and had a lot of fun with it, but I'm going to wait for the 2nd gen before making my purchase.

Right, because as a sideline consumer at this time many will have the feeling "I now need to wait for v2 since I waited this long and hopefully it is cheaper.". Not sure the two pc companies driving this understand how consumer electronics work well enough.

There is plenty of content for so soon. Killer app? killer app hype may be and older thing now, to me when there weren't so many games you could have a landmark. I personally have more games I love then time to play, by far.

A) How does he know where the child porn is. B) How does anyone know it's 20%. If they know the total amount than they must know where it is, right? And if that's the case why is it still there?

I was going to call you dumb but it occurred to me that despite being a member here forever, you might not understand how this website actually works. This website indexes news but those links and headlines are not the total sum of the information. You have to click on the links, read the articles and then use your brain to interpret the information. This information might or might not be correct, you have to make an attempt to decide for yourself based on the facts and your own analysis.


I think you may have something important to say here, but I need a TL;DR version.

I've kinda been wanting to try Conan, but I'm settling on ARK for now because of their conveniently-timed $10 sale. Should have more stuff to do with less bugs anyway, right?

Fuck ARK, get Subnautica instead.

Single player makes it a totally different experience for me vs the others listed.

What I expect from game mode: Pause any cpu intense background tasks like defender or windows update. What I don't expect: to magically increase framerates with the same hardware.

right, they say it has more impact on the minimum fps rather than the maximum... and these days i think that may be much more important

games lately have had more issues with "frame pacing" than just simply cranking out fps... its much better to have a firm 60 than something that goes from 30 - 90 in a wildly erratic manner from time to time

True, but what is 30 fps? We got a console gamer up in here still? I don't mind wildly erratic fps between 60 & 144!

Right. All these new screens and options are lite weight console type screens. If that was the future and the old options gutted... yeah that would do it for me, unless every reasonable feature for users (not MS) is addressed. To this day I have whatever version of win10 that existed when the free offer time expired and won't be moving unless something big happens... in my favor.

Hope we can turn off WGM. I don't need another performance hit beyond the ones already occurring in Windows 10. My least favorite is the Draconian updates downloading whenever regardless of what I'm doing. I can't stop this, but I know it's going on according to Resource Monitor. Very annoying.

There are several ways to disable the Windows Updates. Option 1 only works on Win10 Pro, and I don't think option 2 works anymore, but options 3-5 work.

Option 5 isn't complete and won't work by itself, you have to stop the Bits service to. But that is the option I would always recommend, 2 simple services to stop.

For my understanding, how does this play out.

1. Zeni feels wrong.
2. Creates lawsuit.
3. Caramack supposedly wipes drive.

Got that, but what happens next?

Court order and FBI comes to office and confiscates system?

I just wonder how the drive is surrendered.
